Why is Israel hacking away at its own democratic institutions and values? The assault on the judiciary, primacy of the majority at the expense of minorities, loyalty as a litmus test, corruption and illiberalism – are these Israel’s destiny?

Hebrew University political scientist Gayil Talshir, editor of the book “Governability or Democracy” examines the roots, causes and manifestations of democratic erosion in Israel today.
